Spartan RB doing well in recruitment

Spartan stand out focusing on upping several aspects of his game. Ben Brumm started playing football in first year peewee for the Dartmouth Destroyer minor football club. Later, he joined the Nova Scotia football program and participated in the U17 Spalding Cup, as well as the U18 Canada Cup. He has won Most Improved and Most Determined for the first and second year of bantam.

The running back is currently in his junior year playing for the Dartmouth Spartans in the Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL).

“The highlight of last season was the ability to take leadership and influence the teammates around me while at the same time improving my skills both on and off the field,” said Ben. He hopes to grow his communication skills to make himself a better leader and captain on the team.

During the first half of summer, Ben trained with the Nova Scotia Team. He also worked out six days a week with both strength and agility exercises during the offseason, as those skills are essential to being a running back. For this season, the Spartan is looking to focus on consistency and the ability to have multiple different styles of play, such as power, speed and elusiveness. So far this season, Ben has rushed 224 yards with 25 attempts in the last two games.

In the future, his plan is to get a decent scholarship through both academics and athletics to help get himself through his studies to work in economics or accounting. The Spartan finished his sophomore year with a 92% overall average and has over 80 hours of volunteer work.

“The recruitment process has been going well for me as the Canada Cup was a huge part of getting a chance to talk to different universities and introduce myself,” added the Spartan. He plans on looking into Western further, as it was suggested to him, as well as take a look at Saint Mary’s and St. Francis Xavier.

On the field, his biggest influence is his Head Coach Lou Velocci, who has been a role model for him. Velocci has taught him to never give up and never be satisfied with how he is as there is always something to improve.

“The most influential people in my life are definitely my parents who work hard and have never given up on giving me the best future possible,” commented Ben.
